Cheney, WA (Sports Network) - Eastern Washington's record-setting wide receiver Brandon Kaufman will forego his senior season and enter the 2013 NFL Draft.

Kaufman is a junior-eligible prospect after receiving a medical redshirt in 2011 because of a broken left hand.

The 6-foot-5, 215-pound Kaufman came back this season to catch 1,850 receiving yards, a single-season record for the Football Championship Subdivision. He caught 93 passes and 16 touchdowns as the Eagles posted an 11-3 record and reached the national semifinals.

As a sophomore in 2010, he caught two touchdown passes in the second half when Eastern Washington rallied to beat Delaware in he FCS national championship game.

Kaufman caught 221 and 33 touchdowns in 42 career games.

Kaufman's teammate, quarterback Kyle Padron, also will forego his senior season to enter the draft. He spent one season at Eastern Washington after transferring in from SMU, and shared quarterback duties with redshirt freshman Vernon Adams.

Padron threw for 2,491 yards and 17 touchdowns this season. The 6-4, 233- pound signal-caller set a SMU passing record in 2010 with 3,828 yards and 31 touchdowns.
